i am really confused! i am doing the production of ethene from fractional distillation and i understand the whole concept of it
what i don't get is how i can write a balanced eqn to show how ethene can be produced from C14H30 (tetradecane?!)
C14H30 ------> C7H14 + C7H16...but the alkene formed is not ethene...
